What is Cut Polishing and Compounding?

Your car's paintwork is affected by UV rays, salt residue from winter roads, bird droppings, tree sap and other contaminants which attack your car's surface on a daily basis, leaving it dull and oxidized.

Professional polishing and waxing on a regular basis will keep your car's finish protected, clean and shiny even after 10 or 15 years from new. The polishing process can safely remove fine surface scratches, oxidization (fading) and avoid the onset of corrosion i.e... Rust spots.

Most people do not understand the differences between claying barring; wet sanding, compounding, polishing and waxing a car's paintwork. So what is compounding, polishing, paint rejuvenation, paint restoration, cut and polish, paint protection?

Compounding is basically a term for using a cutting compound/paste to remove the fine scratches. Or to cut out surface scratches and extensive hazing and swirl marks.

Polishing is a very broad term which can mean any of the various methods and techniques that are required to restore paintwork.

Paint rejuvenation, restoration and paint correction are basically the same. This is a term we use when the paintwork is oxidized, faded and heavily scratched which will need at least 3 stages of compounding, polishing and waxing performed.

Cut and Polish is a process which is used to remove surface scratches, light oxidation and swirl/haze marks.

Firstly the paintwork is will be washed and dried we will Clay Bar the exterior for best results before waxing. Machine polished with a very fine cutting polish which will safely remove the paints imperfections and then a layer of wax applied by hand or machine. (Both of these 2 steps are applied using a soft foam pad). Yours vehicles paintwork is then buffed using a microfiber polishing cloth.
